The Froebel Trust funds research into children’s learning from birth to eight years and supports high quality early education. The charity’s work is based on the principles of Friedrich Froebel, the inventor of kindergartens and a pioneer of early childhood education and care. The Froebel Trust believes in the importance of play, learning through nature, practical hands-on learning and nurturing a child’s connection to their community.
